Development of Seattle Central Waterfront

by Linda Pham

Location: Union Street and Alaskan Way

The Seattle Central Waterfront has gone through a long history of development and change. Since its construction began during the building of the city of Seattle, the waterfront has come to encompass many different activities; it first was a port for trade that would fuel the economy of Seattle; later it would be a place for recreational activities and tourist attractions. Today, the waterfront is an integration of historical places and contemporary buildings. Seattle’s city planning problems of today, including the Alaskan Way viaduct, is a major influence on the waterfront, and the decisions made by our officials and voters could affect it in a positive or very negative way.

Micro Urbanism

The term “micro-urbanism” describes small-scale urban spaces and design interventions that enable a wide variety of activities, events, processes and functions to take place. It also involves ways to reinterpret the urban landscape.
